Having it all would cost her everything. But for Mildred Pierce (Kate Winslet), success was worth the price. As a struggling single mother in Depression era Los Angeles, Mildred is determined to fulfill the demands of her eldest daughter Veda (Evan Rachel Wood), surpassing societal expectations and the betrayal of lovers along the way.
Great acting, slightly weak story.

This is a well above average five part mini-series from HBO, the cast is top notch and the acting is nothing short of superb. The only thing that lets it down is a story line which peters out towards the last two episodes. Well worth renting though if you're a fan of mini-series.
